Chicago Trip Part 4 (Skydeck/Taste of Chicago/Museum of Science and Industry)

17 Aug

Ello Meebsies,

It really has been awhile hasn’t it? I’ve been taking a little time to relax and reflect. ^_^ I think it’s important to take a break every once and awhile. ^^ It was nice to finally sit down and read. I use to read all the time, but this past year I haven’t read a single book for fun. I forgot how amazing reading is…

On another note; yes this is another Chicago post. I’m telling you guys, I had a lot of adventures there. ^^ Without further ado…

I can’t say that Taste of Chicago was my favorite experience in Chicago. IDK about you guys, but I can’t eat at all when it’s hot. If it weren’t for my friends who actually got food. I would have eaten only Italian Ice and drank water for the whole experience. It was just way too hot. However, the food I did eat was pretty good. ^_^

First time I have ever had gumbo. Yummy. ^^

Despite the appearance, these were pretty darn good. Lol.

This was sweet cool relief in 103 degree weather. Thank God for Italian Ice. Lol.

Buckingham Fountain. Beautiful.

Cloud Gate. You can see the whole Chicago Skyline.

It’s kind gross to see all the hand smudges. O.O

I’m a sucker for museums. Especially when they are interactive. This rippling water machine was my favorite.

Indoor tornado. Pretty cool.

Made my own personal Meebsie Raindow. ^-^

Had to visit the Skydeck of course. So beautiful. I LOVE the city. It’s breathtaking. ^^

It’s a long way down. Lol.  They have really cool sky boxes that protrude from the building so you can see the whole city from all directions.

Even though it might not look like it. I was shaking in my boots when  took this pic. I have a serious fear of heights. T_T

This is my new favorite tea spot. Too bad they don’t have one where I live. T_T

Had to detox my body from eating out everyday with a Green Tea Ginger Twist. SOOOO GOOODDD!!! Highly recommend if you like ginger. I was actually at the grocery store the other day and found bottle teas from this cafe in the health drink section.

This was one of the must do on in my Chicago list. I had seen this place on the Food Channel and Travel Channel, so I HAD to come. I think I waited in line for about an hour in 100 degree weather till I was able to see the door. My will was waning once I hit the 30 min mark, but it’s sooo worth it…soooo worth it. ^_^

This is just their rare hot dog menu. They are most famous for this. But they do have a pretty mean Chicago dog if you don’t feel adventurous. Oh, FYI they only take cash. You have been warned. Lol.

These duck fat fries are heavenly horrible for my thighs. Lol. If you get a change to go on the days they serve duck fat fries, try them out!! ><

We finally ended out day with Thai food at the Silverspoon. It reminded me a little of home. Even though I’m not Thai. It was nice to have Asian food for a change. Silverspoon is an AMAMZING Thai place. Very affordable and very understated. Go if you have a chance. ><

Had to get Pad Thai.

I hope you guys have a great weekend. Enjoy the sun! ^_^
